Report: Arsenal ready to sell 28-year-old for just £6m

The Daily Express claim that Arsenal are actively looking to sell Sead Kolasinac this summer, and want to do so for just £6m. The Bosnian defender spent the second half of last season on loan at Schalke. Now, he returns to Arsenal but the chances are that he will be sold on.

Kolasinac, 28, only played nine times in the first half of the 2020-21 campaign – only one of which came in the Premier League. It saw him choose to go on loan and rejoin former side Schalke – with Shkodran Mustafi moving permanently, at least for his six months.

With Arsenal looking to raise funds this summer and Kolasinac in the final 12 months of his contract, Arsenal are ready to cash in. A report from the Express claims they are willing to do business for just £6million this summer – and sell the 38-time Bosnia international.

Should Arsenal sell Kolasinac for £6m, or give him a chance?

Mikel Arteta might want to adopt a back three once again which worked well at times last season. If so, it could give Kolasinac a route back into the side. Able to play as a left wing-back or on the left of a back three, the German-born star’s versatility would make him a good bench player.

But realistically, Kolasinac knows he is firmly behind Kieran Tierney. Arteta has used a back four during pre-season and is much more likely to go down that route. For the good of his career, a move is needed.
